Ann Lévesque

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e, Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO)
Les milieux naturels sont soumis à diverses pressions où la coexistence entre l'agriculture, la conservation, la gestion de la faune et des ressources hydriques peut devenir une source de tensions, ou même de conflits. À travers le prisme de la justice environnementale, cette... Read More →

Antoine Hénault

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Les toits verts sont de plus en plus utilisés comme des outils de mitigations contre les îlots de chaleur et pour la gestion des eaux pluviales. On reconnait maintenant le rôle essentiel du microbiome du sol pour de nombreuses fonctions écosystémiques. Cependant, on en connaît... Read More →

Dane Pedersen

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
The Salish Sea is the inland body of water between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia and Washington, requiring collaborative governance from a range of diverse actors spanning Western Canada and United States. It is home to the endangered southern resident killer... Read More →

Veronica Groves

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Inland fisheries are vitally important for food security in many parts of the world; however, many are threatened by overexploitation. Harvesting can have strong impacts on fishes, driving declines in abundance, and occasionally, changing life history traits. Much of our current understanding... Read More →

Jonathan Cole

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
The landscape between the Laurentian Mountains in Québec and the Adirondack Mountains in New York State is one of three north-south wildlife movement linkages that connect natural areas in Southeastern Canada with Northeastern United States. This region boasts a wide variety of habitats... Read More →

Julia McDowell

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Cooperation between countries in marine management to protect shared resources is beneficial both ecologically and economically. Marine reserves are not designed with connectivity to other reserves as a top priority, and most are designated by a single country. A group of marine reserves... Read More →

Gabriel Dansereau

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Identifier où se trouvent, dans l'espace, les zones de biodiversité exceptionnelle est une question prioritaire pour la conservation de la biodiversité. Le concept des contributions locales à la diversité bêta (LCBD) permet de répondre à cette question en évaluant le caractère... Read More →

Pierre-Alexandre Bergeron

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Les bassins de rétention sont de plus en plus utilisés pour la gestion des eaux d’écoulement le long des axes routiers. Cependant, la colonisation végétale associée à ces structures a été peu étudiée. Dans un contexte de forte diminution des superficies occupées par... Read More →

Audrey Paquette

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Le changement d'utilisation des terres exerce des pressions importantes sur les milieux naturels en région habitée. La base de plein air de Sainte-Foy (BPASF) est un parc municipal urbain avec plusieurs types de milieux humides et zones forestières. Ce projet vise à poser un diagnostic... Read More →

Sarah Chamberland-Fontaine

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Despite being one of the most threatened ecosystems in the world, mangrove forests are often inadequately managed. Management issues include noncompliance with mangrove protection laws, a lack of coordination among agencies, and habitat loss. Sustainable mangrove management (SMM... Read More →

Julia Briand

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Coral communities support key ecosystem processes and services. Evaluating the spatio-temporal dynamics of coral communities is essential for understanding and predicting the impacts of environmental change on coastal ecosystem functioning. Such environmental change is often attributed... Read More →

Justin Marleau

Postdoctoral fellow | Postdoctorant.e
The effects of organisms beyond resource consumption are vital to explaining ecosystem function and structure. Previously proposed concepts to organize and understand these effects such as trait-mediated indirect interactions and ecosystem engineering have aided our efforts, but their... Read More →

Kayleigh Hutt-Taylor

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
The urban forest is made up of the trees and associated green spaces in parks, streets, private land and natural areas within the city. As part of the urban landscape, trees are a key contributor to biodiversity and ecosystem service provision. For example, trees within our green... Read More →

Kiri Stern

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Species connectivity models play an important role in ecological research and biodiversity assessment. Unfortunately, simulations of connectivity models are typically slow, therefore preventing the rapid iteration and updates of models when evaluating different scenarios. In this... Read More →
